George "Cliff" Rutherford

A good man has passed.

George "Cliff' Rutherford passed October 18, 2017, in the peace of his family and home.

Born in Dallas, Texas, August 25, 1927, Papa was a WWII Navy veteran, graduate of Southern Methodist University, member of Sigma Chi Fraternity, partner with his brother Wells in both Dixie Bell Maple Syrup Co. and later, RKR, proud Son Of Texas, and a family man.

Above all, a family man.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 64 years, Marilyn; children, Mary Lynn, George, Ken; grandchildren, Michael, Randy, Michelle and Kristen; great-grandchildren, Logan, Landon and Liam; nieces and nephew, Katie, Lizzie, Josie, Maggie, Laurie and Matthew; and Yoder the Wonder Dog.

Papa lived a full, joyful life and we are thankful for the time he shared with us and treasure the memories and examples he left behind.

A good man has passed.
